I have broken my website. I went into the general settings in the Dashboard and changed my site URL from www.therealdeal.org.uk/newsite to www.therealdeal.org.uk. I left the Home address as www.therealdeal.org.uk/newsite. I now get:

This website is temporarily unavailable.

I have accessed PHPmyadmin and manually changed the wp-options table but it does not seem to have any effect. I cannot access my website or Admin panel any more.

  • Have you also changed your wp-config.php settings? – Aravona Oct 7 '15 at 14:43
  • Just went to your site. Looks like you got it fixed... – Bryan Willis Oct 7 '15 at 15:10

To get your site back

Open wp-config.php - ( add these lines )


or to have it autmatically map to the right places

define( 'WP_SITEURL', 'http://' . $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'] );
define( 'WP_HOME', 'http://' . $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] );

Load the admin or login pages a few times
